    When using marijuana in the smoked form, does eating cause you to loose your high?

    I've heard having taken too much (moreso in the eaten form) you can drink orange juice to help bring down the high. Just wondering if other foods did that in general or if it's a specific type of food.

    From what I've observed, yea eating does bring your high down a little. That kind of has to do with the munchies, i guess.

    That's why I've stopped smoking and then eating. I'll just eat a nice meal, and then smoke.

    Yeah it does bring down the high a wee bit.. Really depends on what ur eating, like fresh orange juice and sugery snacks will bring your high down...

    omg really? i don't think a shower can bring down your high, so you could just be saying that you prefer to shower sober... but i effing LOVE showering high..

    especially if iv been working out a bunch, b/c then i can just stare at my body and remember what it used to look like, and how it's changed.

    the human body is so amazing.

    well, i dont think that eating really brings your high down so much as it is moreso that the passage of time doesnt seem so slow so really your just naturally coming off your high and are just consumed with the fact of eating, also i think that when you are done eating your more aware of other sensations your feeling, so the high isnt so much in your head as it was, but i do believe that it slows it some because your body is metabolising the food so some of the energy is spent on the food rather than the weed as well, there are many different explainations.

    best thing to do is eat a meal before hand cause if you get hungry after you smoke and your peak of the high you will come down more quickly. all depends how much long after you smoke that you eat the munchies i would think.

    Eating at the end of a high is nice for me because it helps bring me down without crashing.

    I think it does bring down your high, but eating high is amazing, so if I smoke before I eat a lot of times. Same goes for showers. :D

    Time brings down your high, and, eating wastes time.

    Well I can't offer and scientific data, but I can say that eating does not kill my high. In fact, it kind of adds to the high...

    Man, I am such a glutten...

    No one has the exact same body chemistry as someone else so honesty it probably just depends on the person.

    I've known plenty of people including myself who "come down" when they eat.

    Smoking a menthol cig after green use to make my high seem stronger in college ... but these days cig smoke will bring me down as well.

    So I think it just depends.

    Personal experience: No. But it's like "breaking the seal" when you're at the bar drinking... once you go the first time, you can't seem to stop.

    Scientific explanation for potential high-killing (speculative):
    -maybe the fat in the meal helps to metabolize/sequester the THC.
    -I've heard that munchies result from weed-induced hypoglycemia. By remedying the hypoglycemia, you remedy the munchies (sometimes) and maybe lessen other effects as well?
    -blood goes to the stomach for digestion (instead of to the brain, delivering the drug)

    That's just a guess.
    But personally, no, I don't think it matters much unless I'm just barely high to begin with. If I'm really baked it doesn't matter if I eat.
